Papaya, carrot and chicken salad, &
Polenta with mushroom and red wine sauce.

This can be even better if you make the polenta beforehand, let it cool and kinda press it together, then cut it into bite size cubes and fry in the butter. However we have been eating way too many sweets these days and need to be on a lighter side for dinners... therefore tonight just a plain version of polenta...

Callie, I hope that your DH feels better soon. With the chili dogs I am going to handcut some French fries and fry them in olive oil. Then I like to sprinkle the fries with garlic pepper.

I've been defrosting a 18 pound turkey in the fridge, and today was it's cooking day. So, I've got it in the big giant roaster, along with rubbed sage, garlic, and 2 cut up navel oranges from my tree in the back yard.

Not sure what I'm cooking with it though - I'll be at the grocery store later.
